What do you think of when you consider your kitchen cabinets: efficiency, storage, and functionality? Or do you dream about having custom options that streamline your daily routine? If you're considering a remodel or a new build, there are several must-have kitchen cabinet features that are trending now. These cool designs can add some great aesthetics and save you time during your day, and the Boca Cabinets team is here with our top five favorites.

Custom Pull-Outs

It’s all too common to have spices and utensils nearby on the counter space, but if the countertop is cluttered with too much excess, consider adding storage between appliances and cabinets. This slim feature takes up very little space and allows you to prioritize commonly used items with divided storage containers and shelving to keep spices and other small items contained and easy to access.

Extended Pantry Shelves

If you're trying to save space but still desire a pantry, adding pull-out drawers concealed within standard kitchen cabinets can be a brilliant design feature. The items pull easily out from the wall and extend far enough that you don't have to reach inside a compartment or go in a side room, giving you a functional and easy-to-organize storage area to keep all your favorite dry goods and small appliances.

Built-in Caddies

More often than not, without good organization, your silverware drawer can become a mess. Another popular addition to kitchen cabinetry is a built-in caddy specifically for your utensils, letting them stay neatly stored, organized, and easily accessible.

Frameless Style Doors

If you're looking for a modern or contemporary style, frameless-style cabinets are the way to go. The drawers and doors rest on the cabinet box, and the hinges are anchored to the cabinet's side walls. They offer more storage, easy-to-adjust shelves, and a sleek design supporting an open shelving aesthetic.

Soft Close Doors and Drawers

Rushing is normal in a busy household, but unfortunately, your cabinetry can get damaged if it is closed or opened roughly. Soft-close systems are built on hinge and slide mechanisms to control how drawers and cabinets function. The design slows the force and momentum of the drawer or door and prevents excessive wear and tear.

These are ideal for households with children because they remove the risk of little fingers being slammed in the drawer, cut down on the noise from opening and closing, and you don't have to worry about the contents being bustled around because they gently open and close.
